The smoked chicken.. Terrible
The cocktails - woeful
The fish - overcooked
Wow.. It was so bad we were in and out in an hour.
Literally will Never go again.. What's weird is that we were at sister restaurant Ysabel earlier in the week.. Sooooo much better!!

The service was just ok but worst of all the food just comes out as its ready so the 3 of us got out entrees at completely different times. It's was odd and felt disorganized and like the restaurant could care less. Will not be returning.

We were told at brunch this last weekend that the "Chicken and waffles are out of this world." Well....3 out of 4 ordered and they were just MEH. The sauce needed some KICK or SALT or SOMETHING.
It was just underwhelming honestly. Though saw celebrities while dining so not too shabby!

This was my first time at Laurel Hardware and unfortunately my experience there will probably never entice me enough to go again. The service wasn't horrible, it was just terrible. The food was over-priced and to be honest, quite boring. The only thing that was "good" on the menu was the lobster.
Sorry, I wish I could say I had a positive experience. But I didn't.

Made reservations in advance and placed an order for a birthday dessert for my sis but they said they couldn't guarantee it. When we arrived on time, we weren't seated but rather escorted to the bar to purchase drinks. About 10-15 minutes later, we were finally seated. I found it puzzling that they took so long as our reservation was at 7:00pm and the restaurant was less than half full. We had a concert to go to at 9:30 so we didn't want to run behind. Whatever the case, our server was friendly but almost non existent throughout the evening. Appetizers came out at a good pace but entrees took a lot longer which made the pacing of dishes awkward. It took forever to get our dessert despite me reminding our server in case she forgot and we had to flag her down for the check and flag her down again to get the check processed. It's just too much work to enjoy a dinner imo. I'll being going elsewhere for my dining choices from now on.

Laurel hardware has amazing food and the location is spot on perfect..... But with all good things there is a catch! Don't expect good service the server spent maybe 2-3 minutes at our table. My friends meal arrived 15 minutes prior to my meal and the excuse was things comes out as they come out. Additionally our server kept tripping up and his excuse was he was just back from vacation! It's sad that this town is over run with hospitality Individuals and this restaurant is more concerned with trying to look hip or cool and they this reach for the image of chic ruined any chance of adequate service!
we were visiting from NC and this place was recommended. we enjoyed happy hour at the bar which we don't have in NC. we sat outside on the patio and it was a really cool atmosphere. Loved it. Food was very good too and an interesting cocktail menu!
Creative and dynamic
This is one of the best restaurants we have tried in LA (West Hollywood) in the last several years. Very understated on the outside and in front, and so beautifully redone in the back. The food is thoughtful and creative but not unrecognizable. The drinks, delicious and the waitstaff hip and helpful. Grab a drink in the lounge area in the back before heading to table inside or out. We will be back...

Laurel Hardware is the type of neighborhood foodie/cocktail bar you can stop in for a casual drink in the early evening without a reservation, or if you feel more secure with a reservation, Open Table makes it easy to set that up. It gets packed later in the evening and becomes more of a bar scene, but earlier on, it's not too packed. I prefer to hit it right before it gets too packed and becomes a scene. Their food is pretty yummy albeit a little bit on the expensive side for size and portions but not unexpected for the neighborhood.
Cocktails are amazing! Check out their vintage bar, gorgeous detailing.
We've become occasional regulars at Laurel Hardware, and yet every visit seems a treat. This time, we ordered some of our favorites (pork ribs, house cut fries, pepperoni pizza) and also tried two new dishes -- the hamachi (delicious) and the carrots, which were one of the best things we've eaten in months. As always, service was charming and smart. We always ask for (and have been lucky enough to get) the back patio -- it's a wonderful space. I suspect we'll continue to return for some of the best dining in the area.

It was very quiet - but that was because we were seated in the front area. The back and lovely garden were all filled with a very high noise level. Definitely a scene. If you want the garden, be sure to specify in your reservation. Loved the food.

My fish was full of bones and they did not let me know to watch out for that. It's fine if a fish has bones, but usually I am told and there is a way to separate the bones from the meat with ones fork.
Also, our waitress came over maybe once. Had she been more attentive, we could have ordered more than one drink. Really not great service in our experience last night.
Good atmosphere though.
Love Laurel Hardware!
My kids and I wanted to try a different place and Laurel Hardware had such great reviews we drove over the hill from the valley! The restaurant is spacious with lots of different seating areas, the back patio is lovely. The menu afforded something for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, we especially enjoyed the chicory salad, kale salad, gnocchi, and the brussel sprouts were amazing!The wine list had some unique offerings, I especially liked my glass of Zinfandel. The dessert menu was fun as well, I had a wonderful panna cotta with a glass of Madiera that paired very well. We will definitely come back!!
